Term Main definition
Centrifugal Pump

A centrifugal pump is designed to move a fluid by rotational energy from the impellers. Fluid enters the rotating impeller and is pushed out by centrifugal force through the impellers vane tips. The action of the pumps impeller increases the fluids velocity and pressure and directs it towards the pump outlet. The casing of a centrifugal pump is designed to constrict the fluid from the pump inlet, direct it into the impeller and then slow and control the fluid before it is discharged at the outlet.
